Nature-based Physical Activity Prescription Survey

Nature-based Physical Activity Prescription Survey

NC State University
Park Rx America

What is this survey about?
Park Rx America has partnered with NC State University to conduct a survey exploring which patient groups are perceived to benefit from receiving a nature-based physical activity prescription from their healthcare provider.

Who is eligible to participate?
All healthcare professionals (e.g., medical, behavioral health, nutrition, etc.) are invited to participate. Whether you are a pediatrician, primary care provider, nurse, nurse practitioner, nutritionist, therapist, behavioral health specialist, physical therapist, or any other type of healthcare provider, we invite you to share your opinion with us and participate in the survey. No experience with nature-based physical activity prescriptions is necessary to complete the survey. When you have finished the survey, don't forget to invite your colleagues to participate as well!

Do I need experience with these prescriptions to participate?
Absolutely not. No experience with nature-based physical activity prescriptions is necessary to complete the survey. We welcome participation from all healthcare providers regardless of your personal experience with writing a nature prescription. Never heard of the idea? That's ok, we want to hear from you as well. Have lots of experience with nature prescriptions? We want to learn from you, too. If you have never written a prescription, or if you write several a day, we invite you to participate in the survey.

How can I access the survey?
You can click on this link to access the survey website.

What about confidentiality?
All of the information that you provide in the survey will be strictly confidential. Your individual responses to the survey questions will be anonymous, as they will be grouped together with the responses provided by all the healthcare providers who complete the survey.

What do I get for participating?
If you decide to participate in this study, we will ask you to complete a survey. After you complete the survey, you can choose to enter a drawing to win one of ten $100 gift cards.

And how long will the survey take?
We anticipate that it will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete the survey.

Where can I find the results of the study?
We hope to have a summary of results posted here on the Park Rx America website in mid-March.

Who can I contact if I have questions?
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the project manager, Courtney Schultz. She can be reached via email at or by telephone at (262) 490-2151.
